About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Party dress!!!!

I would probably wear a dress like this one.....yeah pattern and color too. We have to dress up real swanky for Jeff's big company party every year. They fly all the employees into Texas and we stay at the Hilton in Dallas and have a blast. The night that they have the huge party is when we get to dress up...Yep, Harlee too. They have special parties for their particular age groups.
I would have to have heels to go with the dress though, the taller the better...Bwahahahahahahaha. Jeff is 6 feet tall and I'm only 5' 5" so last year I wore 4" heels with no problem. I never liked being taller than my guy even when I wear heels. Before I met Jeff, I dated quite a few guys and I would tell them that I wear heels a lot and I was really turned off if they were not taller than me. But, some guys have the Napolean complex and didnt realize their own height.... after a few times of meeting a few short guys, I met a man at a restaurant (never let them pick me up...a girl had to be careful..ya know) he was sitting down when I arrived and he stood up and I immediately saw how short he was. After he assured me that he was exactly 5' 10" several times on the phone. I called him out on it... Shallow??? maybe, but I was getting very tired of the crap by then. I told him, in a very nice way, that there was no way he was 5' 10" and he was standing there arguing with me....LOL Needless to say the date didnt go well....Bwahahahahahahaha. Now, I don't have to worry about anything like that. My sweetheart is the best ever!!!!!
Ok, now to the card........
This is a new image from Modern Sugar Blvd. It was just screaming for me to paper piece it. I used color pencils on the ruffle and the top part. The wording is also a new digi from MSB.... You can click over to see the other DT ("Sugars") stuff and then dance on over to MSB to grab you a few for playing with.
Until later, Dancing Queens.....Gotta split....TFL !!!

Ooh la la is right! LOL Crystal, my body and that dress would never fit together. And 4 inch heels? I'd kill myself in those! Sounds like loads of fun though! Just like this card. Fun and happy feeling!

oooo sexy! I'm 5/5 as well and with heels it does make you taller. I actually dated a guy who asked me my height and when I said 5/5 he was excited - when I showed up in my heels he accused me of lying because I was now 5/8 LOL Go figure - I like big burly men! The burlier the better LOL

Too funny! I hate when the guy has to lie about his height. Want to hear something funny? Before I opened your blog and just saw a tiny piece of your card, my exact thoughts were "ooh la la!" How ironic that the card actually said that when I opened up the post! Have a great day:)
